A hummingbird made a nest last Spring in a rose vine where onlookers could admire her and her baby from only a few feet away. If you adore nature, this home is just like paradise in your back yard. There have also been many pool parties with kids going down the 50 foot water slide multiple times, or putting golf balls on the putting green, and making s'mores in the fire pit.

This home has everything you need to entertain friends and family with magical memories!
